Angela - Bridgwater Memory Café

“I would catch the train from Bridgwater to Bournemouth every summer when I was a child, and we’d spend two weeks staying near Branksome Gardens and Beaches – the same hotel every year. I think I was about 6 the first time we went, and I must have been around 12 when the line closed. I can remember the journey well to this day; we would see the pine trees on the approach to Bournemouth station and we would all get excited as this was the mark of us nearly being on holiday!”
